A relaxing dip in the hot spring waters is said to do wonders for your health. The minerals (like sulfate, calcium, and magnesium) can help relieve fatigue, skin allergies and arthritis, while the heat can improve blood circulation and induce muscle relaxation. This ‘miracle’ bathing culture dates back to the Edo period, but back then, the locals had to travel all the way to the source of the healing waters (like spa towns Hakone and Atami) just for a soak.
Thankfully, there are now over 3,000 onsen located all over Japan. So even if you’ll only be in Tokyo, you can still enjoy a nourishing warm bath within the lively city. In fact, many hotels offer great onsen facilities for their guests. If you’re on the hunt for hotels in Tokyo with hot spring baths, here are our top 10.
